The Safe Harbor Guest House reminded me of my great aunt's house on the coast of Maine. There were flowers in the gardens at the front of the house and a welcoming porch with comfy seating. Inside there were lovely antiques and sofas with good lighting for reading. Lisa, the innkeeper, took us up to our room which was clean...

No place can be all things to all people. On the other hand, Safe Harbor guest house in June is like a rainbow: seems like a mythical thing until you see one. Even then, its hard to imagine such a perfect mix of style, location and amenities exists for us. Our skinny: young couple, small dog, small child, traveled in...

Mike and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Safe Harbor. Our room was nicely furnished and very spacious. The Inn was in a very convenient location which we appreciated since we chose to walk everywhere. Breakfast was very nice (fresh fruits, vegetables, breads, muffins, cheeses and cereals)....just wish coffee had been made available earlier. Mike and I are...

I have had the pleasure of staying at Safe Harbor on numerous occasions. I have stayed in East Wind, North Wind, West Wind, and Zephyr. The rooms have always been clean and well prepared. Stepping onto the porch always gives me the feeling that I have arrived home. I know that my key will be waiting for me on the...

I was apprehensive after reading other reviews when a friend booked us here for the Wine Festival so I was pleasantly surprised to find myself feeling like a warmly welcomed house guest of a Nantucket native. This is a $500 a night location for a fraction of the price, with a lovely breakfast included and nice touches like home made...

When I visit Nantucket I stay at the best, most cozy B&B. It is Safe Harbor Guest House 2 Harborview Way. It is very close to the town proper and it is very convenient to stay there without a car. Everything that you would need or want to do is within walking distance from Safe Harbor. It is across from...

Convenient location near town and the Steamship ferry with Children's Beach and the harbor right outside the front door. Very clean rooms, nice porch and yard, free Wifi, beach towels and a decent continental breakfast.

I arrived in late January for a two week stay. The innkeeper was extremely friendly and gave me a good "off season" rate. She also let me borrow an electric kettle so that I could make tea and coffee anytime. The room was clean, but sometimes a bit cold and drafty. I was left in peace to write and when...

Misleading internet pictures of rooms--beautiful in pictures (which were probably taken 20 years ago) but the reality was quite different. Invisible innkeeper--never saw anyone. Dull breakfast stuff (similar to a cheap motel). Dated, tired decor in the room and rest of house. Scary bathroom. All this for an extremely expensive price! I am not that fussy, but this was definitely...
